Never Ending card

I have wanted to create one of these "Neverending Cards" for a long long time and I thought this was the perfect opportunity to do so. The DSP paper seemed perfect for it. I wanted it to go with the Guest book so again I used the Berry Blossoms DSP(122350) retired, Calypso Coral(122976) and Basic Black(121045) card stocks.
The tutorial for the card can be found on various forums you just need to look for it. The fun part of this card is that it opens and opens and opens returning to the front where you start again and again. To decorate this card I created a 3D flower using the Blossom Petals Builder Punch(121808) The instructions for this flower can be found here, on Mary Fish's blog post.
 The measurements for the card are 6x6 inches, it is decorated with 1.25" square punches in Calypso Coral cardstock(122976) and then 1"punches of the DSP Berry Blossoms(122350) these were then embellished with Basic Pearls(119247).
The second side of the card used the Fruit and Flowers(w-122605 or c-122607), Perfectly Penned(w-122890 or c-122892) and On Your Birthday(111664)retired stamp sets stamped with Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade and Wisteria Wonder  inks.
It is decorated with 1.25" square punches in Wisteria Wonder cardstock(122922) and then 1"punches of a piece of Whisper White card stock(100730) that was stamped randomly all over the surface, some of these were then embellished with Basic Pearls(119247).

 The next turn of the card gives us this view; again using the same colors as the second side.
Some punches using the cardstock and the flower from the retired Triple Blossom punch were randomly added as well.
The stamp sets for the center of this section is again Fruit and Flowers and Smarty Pants(115070) retired and more basic pearls.

 The last page/turn reveals this... Here the 1.25" square punches are in Lucky Limeade and the DSP is the 1" square punches.
 The sentiment comes from the set Full of Life(111500)retired. More basic pearls here too. when you open this view you are back to the start and you can keep on going and going and going....

It was fun to make and my 7yr old nephew had great fun turning and turning it.

Thanks for coming by,
